Julianne Moore's Hair - Celebrity Get the Look - iVillage Beauty Hair

Julianne Moore has the ability to utterly transform her style as easily as she transforms herself into a myriad of complex and compelling characters. Julianne even managed to look fabulous in her role as FBI agent Clarice Starling in Hannibal. If her sleek, chic look is on your most-wanted list, and you have at least shoulder-length hair, follow these helpful clues from stylist Philippe Barr of the Frédéric Fekkai Beauté de Provence Salon in Manhattan. (See Philippe's list of recommended products to get the look.)

STEP 1 Wash your hair using a shampoo and conditioner for color-treated hair. These products are helpful because they contain deep conditioning agents that make the hair heavier, which will help in creating this ultra-straight look.

STEP 2 Using your dryer on a low/cool setting, begin to pre-dry the hair by running your fingers through it from the roots to ends. This is done to remove excess moisture. Stop when your hair is still damp but no longer wet.

STEP 3 Use a comb to create a middle part. Blend a combination of straightening product and smoothing cream in the palm of your hand and work through the hair. This blend will help protect the hair from heat and aid in straightening.

STEP 4 Begin blow-drying the front sections of hair first, as these tend to dry the quickest. Start with the lower sections of hair. Working from underneath, use a round brush to guide the hair slightly forward and straight down, letting the ends fall off the brush. Keep this motion as close to the face as you can. Repeat this process until the whole side of the head is completely dry, and then repeat on the other side.

STEP 5 To dry the back of the head, divide the hair down the middle, and work in the same way you dried the sides, from the lower sections to the top. Make sure that all the pieces underneath are completely dry before you go on the upper layers. If they are even a little damp, the layers on top will absorb the moisture and get wavy.

STEP 6 Now for a little styling deja vu. Using a flat brush, repeat the entire drying process you just finished with the round brush. Going over the hair again with this type of brush will help the hair to become even more flat and shiny.

STEP 7 This step requires a straightening iron with a comb-like edge. Straighten the front of the hair working in large sections from the bottom layers to the top. Start the iron a little away from the roots and pull it quickly, straight down the hair shaft. (When using a flat iron, it's important that, as soon as it touches the hair, you keep it moving. Any pause or hesitation can leave a mark.)

STEP 8 Finish the look by applying styling cream to the top layer of hair from the roots to the ends to smooth and add a bit of separation to the ends of the hair.
